Take a Stand- Tell Colbert SuperPAC: FREE Vanunu! FREE Gaza Palestine!Salem-News.com Staff Report
Last week Stephen Colbert challenged the Colbert Nation to Take a Stand.
(NEW YORK) - Comedy Central's own Stephen Colbert was approved by the Federal Election Commission (FEC) on June 30 for Colbert SuperPAC, now called "Americans for a Better Tomorrow, Tomorrow."
The political action committee will allow him to raise unlimited amounts of money from corporations, unions and individuals to support or oppose candidates in the 2012 elections, legally of course, joining about 100 other superPACs in the United States. His is the arguably the most unique.
Now he has asked our citizenry, "What do you stand for?"
Take a moment to ponder, you do stand for something, correct? You know the old adage...if you don't stand for something, you'll stand for anything. Don't let that be you.
We accepted the challenge, and the Salem-News.com Nation (SNc Nation) has visited Colbert's special PAC site: SuperPAC.
We submitted this message, and encourage you to join our SNc Nation by doing the same:
This effort may be an integral move in waking up the nation. Taking a Stand takes guts, and thoughtfulness- but it's a terrific chance to be heard, and in less than 30 seconds.
Here is what Stephen Colbert wrote last week:
On May 21st, Salem-News.com writer Eileen Fleming spent an evening with Helen Thomas [An Evening with Helen Thomas and Flashback to John Lennon and Vanunu Mordechai]; she told Helen that one of her dreams is to appear on The Colbert Report.
Ms. Thomas smiled and replied, “That’s toxic.”
Indeed, Eileen Fleming is deadly serious about reaching Stephen and also Jon Stewart, for another of her dreams is that Jon would read and discuss her third book, BEYOND NUCLEAR: Mordechai Vanunu’s FREEDOM of SPEECH Trial and My Life as a Muckraker: 2005-2010.
She is an outgoing activist, speaking up on Youtube, and also visiting bit.ly/PACstand, and wrote: "If I can’t laugh it’s not my REVOLUTION."
Eileen Fleming is the founder of WeAreWideAwake.org and currently a Candidate for the House of Representatives.
There is only one message per email address accepted at the Colbert SuperPAC site, so here’s hoping you too will make your mouth-voice heard and help Eileen get some of that Colbert SuperPAC money to help fund her run as a Citizen of CONSCIENCE for House of Representatives 2012, and Eileen says, "we the people will take back The House."
This is your chance to stand and be counted. Please submit your message to Stephen Colbert right away, Eileen needs your support!
Take that stand, begin here: bit.ly/PACstand.
